The LWP::Protocol::https module provides support for using HTTPS schemed URLs
with LWP. LWP::Protocol::https is a plug-in to the LWP protocol handling, so
you don't use it directly. Once the module is installed LWP is able to access
sites using HTTP over SSL/TLS.
If hostname verification is requested by LWP::UserAgent's ssl_opts, and
neither SSL_ca_file nor SSL_ca_path is set, then SSL_ca_file is implied to be
the one provided by ca-certificates.
This module used to be bundled with libwww-perl, but it was unbundled in
v6.02 in order to be able to declare its dependencies properly for the CPAN
tool-chain. Applications that need HTTPS support can just declare their
dependency on LWP::Protocol::https and will no longer need to know what
underlying modules to install.

* Add 746579-fix-peer-certificate-verification.patch patch.
Fixes "HTTPS_CA_DIR or HTTPS_CA_FILE disables peer certificate
verification for IO::Socket::SSL". When the intention was to only
disable hostname verification LWP::Protocol::HTTPS disabled also the
peer certificate verification completely. (CVE-2014-3230)
Thanks to Jakub Wilk and Steffen Ullrich (Closes: #746579)
